Tobacco Pipe

This is a model of a tobacco pipe on a stand that I modeled with Blender, and rendered with cycles. I am posting this under finished projects, since I have already made this one available at Behance. This is the first of my render attempts I have made public in any form. I would like to receive some honest critiques on this project.

The pipe and the stand are both my models. I UV wrapped a picture of my desk surface to parts of both models. I tried to make the plane that the models are sitting on look like green felt, based on some post I found. I didn’t like how it came out, so I messed around with the color ramp nodes, until it came as you see. I thought it made the materials on the models stand out more, so I went with it. Not sure what else to say about this piece.

Anyway, thanks for looking at my post.
